“Last year’s inaugural Fall Fest and 5K was a huge success. It was an important opportunity to promote health and wellness on the County Rail Trail, to support our local businesses, and to bring the community together for some family fun,” said County Executive McCoy. “This year, we’re going to make this event even bigger and better than the last. We’re raising the cap on runners to 500 and bringing in more activities for everyone to enjoy. Can’t wait to see [everyone] there!”
